A pretty sweet overhanging jug haul with a wall behind you to rest on. Start up easy rock to the overhanging arete. Make strenuous moves on big holds, stemming out onto the wall behind you for rests. After you pull through a juggy undercling, you will stay significantly left of the bolt line. More straightforward cranking and you're at the anchors.

From the anchors, you can easily traverse right and put up a top-rope for Nowhere Man.

A good warmup for neighboring sport lines. Once, 2 bright green snakes fell out of the groove and into my bag when pulling the rope.

Stay off the left wall for a 4 star 5.10 sport climb. The closer to the bolt line you stay the harder(& Better) it gets.
